Christina Stephens, Amputee, Creates Prosthetic Leg From LEGO Pieces (VIDEO)

A woman built herself a prosthetic foot -- out of LEGO pieces.

Christina Stephens, an occupational therapist and clinical researcher, underwent amputation after a foot injury earlier this year. She uploads a new video to her YouTube channel, AmputeeOT, each week -- and the June 12th video is particularly amazing.

Watch the video above to see what we're talking about, and check out Stephens' YouTube page for more inspiring videos and information about her story.
